One year after the Taliban took control of #Afghanistan, we don’t forget. We stand with Afghan women. Their fight is our fight.
🚨What is happening in #Afghanistan is an alarm bell for us all. 🚨 It shows how decades of progress on gender equality and women’s rights can be wiped out in months. The fight for women’s rights in Afghanistan is a global fight, and a battle for women’s rights everywhere.

On Sunday, 13 August 1961, Europe found itself divided by a wall erected over night, in the heart of Germany. 61 years later, Europe is, once again, threatened by division. Russia’s war on Ukraine is a stark reminder of this. We won’t let it happen again! Humanity must prevail!

Three months since Shireen Abu Akhle was murdered. And not a step closer to unveiling the truth and bringing justice. The international community and her family are still demanding an independent investigation. Together with @IratxeGarper, we join this call. Justice must prevail!

For 🇪🇺, one thing is clear: Alexander Lukashenka is a dictator and by no means the true leader of #Belarus! Two years have passed since the sham elections he used to usurp power again. The people of Belarus deserve better. They deserve democracy & freedom. We #StandWithBelarus!✊

All our support to @androulakisnick. Explanations by 🇬🇷 PM Mitsotakis are not enough. We call for a full investigation to clarify responsibilities and we will ask for a @Europarl_EN debate in September! @IratxeGarper google.com/amp/s/amp.theguar…

I welcome the Egypt-brokered ceasefire in the Middle East and regret the escalation of violence over the last days, which caused over 40 deaths. Only a credible process for a two-state solution will bring hope back to #Gaza & peace to the region.

Today #WeRemember #Marcinelle.🖤 Workers of many nationalities, half of them Italians, lost their lives 66 years ago. We mourn them, stand in solidarity with their families and strengthen our pledge to make workplaces safe for everyone. Tragedies like these must stay in the past!
Grazie al Segretario @EnricoLetta per aver visitato oggi #Marcinelle. Qui l’8 agosto 1956 centinaia di minatori italiani persero la vita sul lavoro, ricordarli è un dovere. Qualunque sia la nazionalità o il colore della pelle, nessuno deve lavorare in condizioni disumane.

Worldwide, 25 million people are in a situation of forced labour, and 1 in 10 children are in child labour. As S&Ds, we are leading the EU response to put an end to this unacceptable exploitation. How to do so? Let’s find out in the latest episode of What’s Left👇

I welcome the efforts to face Russian threats of gas reduction and aiming a carbon neutral economy. This is EU solidarity at its best even if Orban prefers to stand with Putin. However, we need bolder action to alleviate the impact of prices on the most vulnerable households.

We are deeply saddened by #DavidTrimble’s death. In times of raising tensions in Northern Ireland and the raging war in 🇺🇦, brave people like him are much needed with their committment to peace. His legacy must live on and serve us as an example throughout Europe. Rest in peace

The grain export deal signed today in Istanbul is crucial to avert a global food crisis. Thanks to @UN Sec Gen @antonioguterres for his diplomatic efforts. Russia is the one to blame for a global food crisis and must allow Ukraine to export agricultural products to world markets

Ukrainian grain exports in the Black Sea to be unblocked today! A much needed step forward in avoiding hunger in the world's poor regions. We must avoid another humanitarian drama! We hope Russia keeps its word and allows safe passage to the food resources the world needs.

Nuclear and gas are now considered green energy sources. Surprising, isn't it? We spoke to @paultang about the future of sustainable finance for our latest podcast. Spotify: socsde.ms/Zip Apple: socsde.ms/Zic
